February 18, 2012

MINSTER — A big second half lifted St. Henry to a 51-42 victory over fellow Midwest Athletic Conference opponent Minster on Friday night’s Senior Night.

“For as well as we started out the game — we had pretty good ball movement and ball reversal and so forth against their zones, which we addressed the entire week — we just did a rotten job once they switched defenses and that unfortunately carried over into the second half, and they basically just slowed us to a crawl,” said Minster head coach Mike Lee.

February 12, 2012

Minster got more of both.

The Wildcats downed St. Marys 50-42 with a steady infusion of second-chance points and backdoor lay-ups to go with some stingy defense.

“In a game that we knew was going to be tough and low possessions, a 4-0 or a 6-2 run was huge in this game and we had a couple of those in the third quarter,” Minster head coach Mike Lee said.
